Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is 100% student-centered. I tailor each lesson according to the learning styles, needs, and personalities of my students. I believe in giving students the best tutoring experience by handing them the confidence and knowledge to reach their learning objectives.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

My first session is all about building rapport, establishing trust, and assessing my students. Getting to know my students' strengths and weaknesses enables me to deliver the most effective instruction in our sessions.
